Frednats Hot Stove Banquet this Weekend
In baseball, the hot stove league is the sport's off-season. The phrase does not denote an actual league, but instead calls up images of baseball fans gathering around a hot stove during the cold winter months, discussing their favorite baseball teams and players. A Hot Stove Banquet allows the baseball community to hear directly from the FredNats staff about all of the exciting things to expect during the upcoming season, and do hear directly from the Washington National about their minor league prospects!
WHY: The FredNats will be hosting a Silent Auction during the event, featuring sports memorabilia from sports teams from all over the country including autographed items from the Washington Nationals, and exciting items from local area businesses. 100% of the proceeds from the silent auction and the tax deductible portion of tickets will benefit the following organizations: Sunshine Ballpark Foundation, Thurman Brisben Center, Friends of the Rappahannock, Gladys P. Todd Academy, Micah Ministries andFredericksburg Area Museum.
